According to the GSP, the 25-year-old APD officer was driving his privately-owned vehicle and turned onto the road. It was at that time that officials say 59-year-old Philip Sutter of Irving, Texas darted into the lane and was hit.

The officer remained on the scene and attempted first aid, but Sutter did not survive the crash. 

"It was determined that the crash occurred between two traffic signals and the roadway was dark," the GSP said in a statement.
